In class we watched a video about racism, not here in Hawaii, but an all white community in Iowa.  A teacher named Jane Elliott separated her third grade class into blue-eyed students and brown-eyed students.  It was amazing to watch all the kids change completely, from getting good grades on a test, personality and most importantly attitude.

She told false information to each group to see how they would react and how they would respond.  The first thing she did was tell all the brown-eyed kids that the blu-eyed children were smarter so that got more privileged.  The next day in class she did it again but to the blue-eye children, telling them that they couldn't play outside with the brow-eyed children.  When she told them that it was an assignment they were happy that they could finally be friends with there old friends again.
